       All:

       John Pickering at the University of Georgia has taken the scanned version
       (Biodiversity Heritage Library, 2009) of the 3 volume Catalog of
       Hymenoptera in America North of Mexico produced by the Smithsonian in the
       70's and created a cleaned up and indexed version at:

       
      http://www.discoverlife.org/proceedings/0000/6

       Note that work on indexing and correcting scanning errors is ongoing, but
       what exists now is very usable and is linked back to the original scanned
       pages.

       Comments and suggestions can be sent to:

      The Sun

      Have you ever seen
      anything
      in your life
      more wonderful


      than the way the sun,
      every evening,
      relaxed and easy,
      floats toward the horizon


      and into the clouds or the hills,
      or the rumpled sea,
      and is gone--
      and how it slides again


      out of the blackness,
      every morning,
      on the other side of the world,
      like a red flower


      streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
      say, on a morning in early summer,
      at its perfect imperial distance--
      and have you ever felt for anything
      such wild love--
      do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
      a word billowing enough
      for the pleasure


      that fills you,
      as the sun
      reaches out,
      as it warms you


      as you stand there,
      empty-handed--
      or have you too
      turned from this world--


      or have you too
      gone crazy
      for power,
      for things?
